A community workshop for learning about Technology

On Wednesday last week a team of staff at Holy Family including Mr Gary Snell, Mr Hansen Kosowski, Mrs Emma Finos and I led a workshop for over 35 different families on various aspects of Information Technology. The workshops stemmed from parent interest pertaining to the new 1-to-1 laptop initiative for all students from Years 2 to 7 this year. Parents were able to learn from the experts, being the children, about software and how to use the technology to enhance learning. It was great to see the children sharing their learning with their parents. Specifically, the workshop focused on safety, security and software with information on learning programs such as Active Inspire, Photobooth, Rainforest Maths, iMovie, Keynote and Photos. Overall we will continue to aim to hold similar workshops as the software develops to share our learning as a community.
